Chef's Plate Experience


When it comes to cooking, it's still such a new concept to me. 
There's days when I just don't feel like cooking or the main problem is I just don't know what to cook.
When Chef's Plate reached out to me to try their program, it was an instant "yes" for me.

Chef's Plates Concept:

Weekly Recipes

You start off by choosing their weekly recipes that are created by their culinary team and guest chefs.
New recipes are introduced each week with healthy nutritious balanced meals. 

Fresh Ingredients

Their ingredients are pre-portioned to the right amount of servings for whichever subscription you subscribe. Their ingredients are fresh and locally sourced. Meats are antibiotic and hormone free. Everything is fresh, healthy and this way with their pre-portion there's no waste.

Convenient Delivery

You get to choose the date that you want your order delivered and even if you're not home, the food comes in a well refrigerated box. Always fresh.

Yes, Welcome Chef!
My experience throughout this whole process was amazing.
Here's a few points that I would love to rave about.

I loved how everything came in the bag and once you lay it out it's just simple step of following the procedures of cooking the meal. For someone like me, it's awesome cause I always want to create new dishes but don't know where to start. So I love the idea of how everything is in the box. 

The procedure and the guidance was clear and easy. Nothing hard to understand. For a beginner like me, I really felt like a chef with the end result.

The food was delicious, favourable and fresh!

They don't opt out on cheap produce. Everything was high end, even down to the pasta; it was not the dry pasta but fresh pasta. 

I feel like after cooking this meal, I learned a lot about cooking - simple tips and tricks. 
We made the tandoori chicken and the chicken came out so juicy and not dry "like when I usually make it". I feel more confident to cook because Chef's Plate makes it so easy!

My sisters and I had such a fun time playing with this meal, it was such a great bonding time for us. And it's such a great addition for those who are always busy and don't have the time to think or buy groceries. I think it's a great concept, it was fun and delicious.

I would definitely recommend this to everyone especially to the people who love to learn more about cooking. If you would like to try, enter #STEPHYKEUNG at checkout and receive an additional 3 free plates.

The Bro'Kin Yolk | First Birthday


If you live in Calgary and you haven't been to Bro'Kin Yolk yet, you're missing out! 
When they first opened, I was so excited because we finally have a cute little breakfast spot up north.
And what's even better is that my favourite benny is served perfectly here when combined with their delicious homemade belgium waffle.

There's so much to rave about but let me give you a quick intro to Bro'Kin Yolk.
(information taken from their site)

The Bro's - Gil + Jeff. Two Alberta-born-and-raised brothers behind the Bro'Kin Yolk
Kin - You! Our family, friends, customers and our local farmers + suppliers
Yolk - A staple in our menu and a staple when it comes to breakfast

Serve:  Breakfast, Lunch + Coffee
Location:  #130, 12580 Symons Valley Road NW. Calgary, Alberta
Telephone:  (587) 317-5743 
Hours:  Open Everyday from 7am to 3pm

My first impression of this place is that the atmosphere is very clean, friendly and the service is absolutely amazing. Just like their name "KIN", expect to feel like you're a part of their community and a part of their family. With their family bond being so strong, you really see that they put the effort into knowing each and every one of their customers, making us feel like a part of their family too.

Happy to say, this is one of my favourite breakfast spots! And I would love to Congratulate them on their One Year Birthday. So happy to be able to share their joy, their happiness and their success and there definitely will be many many more years!

Thank you @LapetitteShar for inviting me along to celebrate their First Birthday
& Happy Birthday Bro'Kin Yolk

My Take On Instagram


My instagram is like my visual diary - it's so personal and such a great way to keep in touch with my viewers. Instagram has been a part of my life for awhile now and I would like to share with you a few tips + tricks that worked for me and I hope you're inspired by the things I mention.

-  An instagram works really well when the theme or niche is consistent. There's something about keeping the picture quality similar that appeals to the eye while having different sizes/shapes could tend to look messy.

- Posting consistently engages the viewer to look back and see what's new.

- Spacing out your few favourite types of pictures - meaning for example:
I like to post flatlay, fashion and food pics so I'll post those pictures in a pattern instead of posting, food, food, fashion, flatlay, then food. This way it looks more interesting to your viewers.

- Always keep all horizon line straight in your photos - it's much more appealing to the eye when it's straight then when it's slanted to one side. 

- And don't forget to engage with your audience. It's my favourite time of day when I reply to comments on instagram. It's such a cool way to interact with friendly instagrammers. And it's important to engage because they put their effort and time out to comment to you - it's just the right thing to reply right? So always engage and let your viewers know that you appreciate their comment.

So those were just a few things that helped me throughout my instagram and I always love sharing tips and tricks -  Follow me on Instagram @stephykeung and let me know in the comment below your instagram handle and I'll be sure to check it out :)
